|No. of Characters||Anya the lead. rest others have just charter etched names like ‘the man with one arm’, ‘the ordinary man’, ’the boy with a twisted leg ’, ‘the magician’, ‘the tall woman with full red lips’ etc .|
|Tone of writing is||Serially, continuing from one story, one character to another, which shows how Anya life is interwoven with others though they are strangers.|
|My take on the book||The book has a different start, it says,” I was born because of one man’s inability to read”. and the person is a postman. the letter keeps moving from place to place in hands of different characters who change the fate of the little girl Anya. A girl who is born 29th feb, because it follows a specific albeit unnatural routine as the author says.
A very different way of narrating a story linking different characters of different time period and regions, different age, religion, from rich to poor. the only connecting element is the letter which the postman couldn’t read. I am sure it must have been challenging for the author to write a story in perspective of a girl who is mentally challenged. it the correlations and pieces of the story which makes it gripping to read.
|Do I recommend the book?||Yes, you can read it at a go. It has lots of Dark shades, with serious thinking and thoughts attached to it. it makes the reader go through lots of sad emotions attached to the character.|
|On the other hand||
my rating: 3.5/5.
